{ Calling All Knowmads ...* } Free MOOC On Teaching Character & Creating Positive Classrooms

Dave Levin, co-founder of the Character Lab –along with Angela Duckworth and our very own Dominic Randolph–will be teaching a free MOOC on CourseraTeaching Character and Creating Positive ClassroomsThe course, which begins February 9th, 2014 and runs for four weeks, will explore questions such as:

  1. How can positive psychology help us maximize student engagement and accomplishment?
  2. What does it look like to implement a growth mindset in your classroom?
  3. Can you teach grit in the classroom? If so, how?
  4. Should an educator measure character? If so, how? 

This course explores the interconnection between character research, education, and academic rigor. During our sessions, we’ll cover the field of positive psychology as it relates to character strengths, as well as the concepts of Growth Mindset, Constructive Responding, and Character Behavior Language. We will engage with the existing research, hear from eminent scholars in the field and top K-12 educators, and view footage of classroom teachers integrating these ideas into their classroom instruction.
